RIM Blackberry Thunder Leaks Again, Haptics are visible

Posted by SG on Monday, July 14, 2008

The RIM Blackberry Thunder’s pics have leaked again. This shows a the lax security setup at RIM. Well we are not complaining as it enables us to see the Haptics enabled Touch Screen of the Thunder. There are speculations that the the Thunder will be renamed as Storm , looks like RIM seems to be sticking with natural forces on this one.

Talking about the Thunder, it features a large iPhonic Touch Screen complete with Sure Type & QWERTY keypads. The buttons formations give away the Haptics of the Tunder. It’s believed to be a slim device to take on the iPhone in not just features but size & dimensions also.

What’s so great about the True Haptics in the Thunder is the response got after pressing a button is from the area which was actually pressed unlike the Pseudo Haptics in today’s phones where the whole phone vibrates to acknowledge a press. The Thunder will also feature an audible clickety sound to enhance the vibrations.

The 3G less Bold called the ‘Javelin’ was also leaked & it’s confirmed to have GPS, Wi-fi, 3.2 mp cam & 4.6 OS. It will also feature the 480 x 320 screen of the Bold.

Sony Ericsson W902 Patty Leaked

Posted by SG on Saturday, July 12, 2008

A new phone by Sony Ericcson W902 Codenamed Patty has been leaked. It’s a Walkman phone and will be the first Walkman phone from SE to have a 5 Mega Pixel Camera. The remarkable thing is that the phone is quite slim at just around 10 mm. Let’s hope and pray for a 3.5 mm jack on the phone.

In recent times, the Walkman phones have suffered for the lack of 3.5 mm jack. It’s hard to believe that a “Music Phone” doesn’t have a 3.5 mm jack to plug custom headphones. In Contrast, Nokia & Samsung have embraced putting 3.5 mm jacks even in their low-end phones. Also the Music Quality of the Walkman phones in the recent past has left a lot to be desired due to the exclusion of a dedicated DSP for Sound Processing. Nokia & Samsung are again at the forefront here too.

The phone is supposed to be based on the SE C902 and will support a bigger screen than C902. Unfortunately Patty doesn’t seem to have a lens cover for protecting it’s 5 Mega Pixel Camera. The phone is equipped with a LED flash. Here’s hoping for GPS inclusion just like C902.

The back of the phone supports a Carbon Fibre type finish just like the LG Secret. The phone will be the first Walkman Phone after the W610 to finally have Auto Focus in it. Earlier the Auto Focus was solely reserved for the Cybershot Series by Sony Ericcson.

All in all the phone seems to be a decent buy with the inclusion of 5 Mega Pixel Cam in a thin frame. The phone seems to be a worthy enough successor of the W800/W810 and if SE price it right, this can be a potential blockbuster for them. That’s if Nokia, Samsung & LG don’t gatecrash into SE’s party.

Motorola launches 5 Mega Pixel Phone ZN5

Posted by SG on Monday, June 23, 2008

Motorola has finally launched a 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone after Nokia, Samsung, LG & Sony Ericsson. The phone is named ZN5 and contains a CMOS sensor developed with the help of Kodak. It’s a candybar and has a morph keypad like the Moto Rokr E8.

It also has Xenon Flash, Auto Focus and a 3.5 mm jack. The icing on the cake is the presence of Wi-fi. The only noteworthy omission is 3G and GPS. It is the first camera phone to have RAW support and also can save image files in TIFF format. Video Recording however is disappointing at QCIF.

The audio quality of ZN5 is excellent and is considered on par of other music phones like Moto Rokr E8 & Samsung i450.

It is a very good camera phone, it’s relatively cheap and the image quality is also good. Now let’s wait when it finally hits stores.

Specs in detail :

  • Quad Band GSM
  • 2.4 inch TFT QVGA Display
  • Touch Sensitive Keypad
  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • 5 Mega Pixel Kodak CMOS Camera with Auto Focus
  • Xenon Flash
  • Crystel Talk Technology
  • 3.5 mm jack
  • FM Radio

RIM announces sharing of data to Indian Government

Posted by SG on Friday, May 23, 2008

If you own a Blackberry Device and stay in India there’s good news for you. RIM, not wanting to get kicked out of the potentially lucrative Indian wireless market, has apparently had its hand forced by the Indian government. Following on government officials’ threats to ban RIM from the country if a workable network-monitoring deal wasn’t worked out in a timely fashion, RIM has announced that they have come to terms with the Indian government.

It took a little longer than India’s 15-day ultimatum, but India and RIM have agreed that RIM would be allowed to provide BlackBerry service in India with the provision that India can keep tabs on all BlackBerry network-data. But, it seems that privacy and data security aren’t as important to RIM as is their PR stance. RIM’s only demand from India is that the country take full blame should any data/information get leaked out.

Well if you are concerned about your data and privacy being leaked then look at the bright side, at least you get to use the Blackberry.

Review of Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 by DPReview

Posted by SG on Sunday, May 18, 2008

Digital Photography Review has just posted the review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. The successor of the popular TZ3 is the latest addition to Panasonic’s family of compact long zoom cameras. It comes with the same versatile 28-280mm equiv. 10x zoom lens as its predecessor but now offers a slightly higher resolution, an improved LCD and High Definition video capture. Nice new features indeed but has Panasonic also managed to sort out some of the image quality issues that we found on previous TZ generations?

Opera Mini Updated to V 4.1

Posted by SG on Sunday, May 18, 2008

Opera has formally updated Opera Mini, the proxy-based web browser, to version 4.1. With a speed increase compared to v4.0, and the addition of URL completion and the saving of web pages, the little browser that lets the server at the end of the connection do all the heavy lifting continues to improve in leaps and bounds. While the built in browsers on S60 handsets have significantly improved over the years, Opera Mini, while targetted at lower-powered phones, still packs a feature set that makes it a contender.

Opera Mini 4.1 lets you have the full Web everywhere. This newest release includes several new features, including automatic completion of web addresses, making it easier to get to the sites you need; tools for attaching files to web-based email; uploading photos to your blog or other site; downloading attachments from email for storage on your phone; and saving and viewing pages offline.

The new Opera Mini takes your mobile browsing experience to a new level of interactivity with both the phone and the Web. Opera Mini 4.1 improves the way Opera Mini interacts with your phone to make browsing more convenient, more productive and definitely more fun.

Posted by SG on Sunday, May 18, 2008

E-ten is gearing towards launching its latest handset, Glofiish DX900, at Computex tradeshow in Taipei, June 3-7.The new smartphone looks pretty much the same as many of E-ten’s previous models, but specs wise it’s a different beast.

The quad-band GSM, tri-band UMTS, HSDPA-enabled smartphone runs the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS – Windows Mobile 6.1. Samsung’s SC3 6400 533 MHz CPU provides the power needed, and 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM guarantee just enough memory for handling multiple demanding apps at the same time. Other specs include 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen, 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, built-in GPS SURF III chipset (20 channels), WiFi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, and microSD memory card slot. As for the size, the Glofiish DX900 measures 106×60.5×17 mm and has a weight of 147 grams.

It’s main competitors are the Sony-Ericsson Xperia X1 & HTC Touch Diamond. Looks like E-Ten is making a lot of progress after being acquired by Acer.
